Outperform
Re-inflation to alleviate Sprouts Farmers Markets pressure, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Edward Kelly says that while short-term caution is certainly warranted given accelerating produce deflation and a tough overall competitive environment, he thinks Sprouts Farmers Markets' Q4 will eventually result in an attractive opportunity. The analyst believes the stock may be the most leveraged to re-inflation at this point, as comps should see relief when pricing firms, margin pressure should moderate as industry promotions begin to ease, and the valuation has upside given it is likely to remain a growth story. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $23 price target on the shares.

Sprouts Farmers Markets fiscal 2017 guidance conservative, says RBC Capital
After Sprouts reported stronger than expected results, RBC Capital analyst William Kirk says that the company's fundamentals continue to be strong. He thinks that the company's guidance is "beatable," partly due to easing comps and lessening cannibalization, along with the contribution of the company's new stores to comp increases. Kirk remains upbeat on the company's fundamentals and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

Jefferies sees $26/share buyout price for Sprouts Farmers Market
After Bloomberg reported that Cerberus Capital Management-backed Albertsons held preliminary talks to merge with Sprouts Farmers Market, Jefferies analyst Christopher Mandeville says historical transactions suggest a $26 per share takeout price for Sprouts. The stock in pre-market trading is up 5%, or $1.13, to $23.15. If Sprouts is willing to sell itself, multiple suitors, both financial and strategic, could show interest, leading to a competitive bidding process that could potentially push the valuation higher than $26 per share, Mandeville tells investors in a research note. The company, as one of the last few growth concepts remaining in grocery, should "receive a very healthy valuation," the analyst argues. He has a Buy rating on Sprouts with a $22 price target.
